Lemmy Kilmister‘s tragic passing came as a shock to quite a few people — particularly in the music industry.

Though several people took to social media yesterday to share their reactions and thoughts on the Mot├â┬╢rhead frontman’s death — including Ozzy Osbourne, Eddie Trunk, and Ice-T — it may have hit Ozzy a bit harder than most.

The Black Sabbath singer opened up to Rolling Stone saying:

“All I’ve done since I heard the news was reflect. He was a good guy, a very good friend of mine. I’m still in some shock.”

The former reality star then revealed:

“I phoned [Lemmy] up two days ago, and I couldn’t make out one word he was saying. Yesterday, I got from his manager saying, ‘Lemmy’s on the way [out], and he wants to see some of his friends.’ So my wife and I were just about leaving the door and the text came saying he’d gone. It shook me up bad. We were like ‘Wow.’ He must have been suffering for a while. You know, he’s 70. He lived the rock & roll lifestyle to the max, but still it’s sad when you lose a friend like that.”

Osbourne went on to say:

“I’ll miss him so much. We all will. There’s a big hole in the music industry as far as I’m concerned.”

We can’t imagine how hard this must be over everyone close to Lemmy — and M├â┬╢torhead fans are in mourning as well.
